[maemo-developers] Maemo5 on Beagle

Another way to stop the garbage on the console when left idle is to
change the sleep timeout (I made it an hour or 3600 seconds) by:
  # echo 3600 > /sys/devices/platform/serial8250.0/sleep_timeout

I still haven't got any video output on my rev B6 board yet, I'll have
another look tomorrow (I don't have a dvi screen handy at the moment
!). X and hildon appear to be running now though.

Thanks for all the help folks !
